Product Description

Product Description

Muhammad Ali - Through the Eyes of the World presents an unparalleled, celebrity-filled tribute to one of the most extraordinary personalities ever to capture the public's imagination! Discover the powerfully moving story of how Ali's fight for glory in the ring transformed him into an international hero whose achievements resonate with millions around the world.

Muhammad Ali's grace, charisma, and remarkable bravado shine through in this affectionate look at his life and career. Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World takes a fairly straightforward documentary approach, chronicling Ali's life and career through film footage and interviews with journalists, loved ones, and a few bizarre commentators, like Scottish comedian Billy Connolly. The film does an excellent job of conveying both Ali's genuine importance as a historical figure and his incredible personal magnetism. Though the documentary doesn't shy away from his faults, Ali is simply impossible to dislike. Most importantly, the film's commentary and carefully selected fight footage make it clear even to those who don't follow the sport what a remarkable boxer Ali was. At one point, Lennox Lewis refers to the "sweet science" of not getting hit, and watching Ali dodge a barrage of punches, we understand exactly what he means. Muhammad Ali: Through the Eyes of the World doesn't pack quite the dramatic wallop of When We Were Kings, but it is a compelling look at one of history's greatest athletes. --Ali Davis

Format: DVD
Muhammad Ali was recently named the "Sportsman of the Century" by Sports Illustrated magazine. "Muhammad Ali Through The Eyes of the World," which comes out on January 29th, tells the amazing story of this great athlete, political figure, and celebrity and you can easily see why Ali might have been chosen for this great honor. After all, he always knew he was "The Greatest" - something he claimed about himself from his earliest days of boxing.
"Muhammad Ali Through The Eyes of the World" is a documentary without a narrator. It basically is hundreds of short clips of interviews of everyone from childhood neighbors, former trainers, boxing opponents, friends, family, celebrities, etc. All of these are held together and made cohesive with clips from various sports and boxing historians. The number of voices making up the documentary, though, is really stunning! About the only one they didn't get a current interview from was Ali himself, but given that he suffers from Parkinson's disease now, that would probably have been fairly difficult.
As most people born before 1985 know, Ali was born Cassius Clay in Louisville, Kentucky. His start in boxing came from his bicycle being stolen. He told his father that he was going to "woop" whoever it was when he found out who had stolen his bike. His father asked if he knew how to fight and Ali said no, so his father took him to the local boxing ring and thus was born one of the greatest if not THE greatest boxer ever. What he did in the ring was revolutionary for a heavyweight, as he danced around with the agility of a Barishnikov ducking and bobbing and getting in a punch here and there till he finally bested his opponents either by out and out knockout or by TKO. At least this was the case in his early days.

this is a fascinating,revealing and insightful look at Muhammad Ali and
the impact he had in America.the movie is pretty comprehensive and in's also very chronicles his life as a young
man just starting out as a boxer and up to his life in 2001.there's no
doubt he was brash and very confident in the ring.but he was also very
savvy and a great showman.he very easily psyched out his
opponents,giving them a handicap before the fight even began.he was
also a great self promoter and extremely charismatic.he often boasted
"I am the Greatest" and as a showman he had no equal.he also was a
great fighter with super hand speed and lighting quick reflexes and
amazing foot work.these skills diminished over time of course,(but his
spirit never,and still hasn't, diminished)allowing his opponents to hit
him much more often and Ali should have hung up the gloves long before
he did.unfortunately the accumulation of bows to his head over the
course of this career cause the brain affliction of Parkinson's
syndrome,a common condition in boxers.but this movie is about more than
a's about a man who stood up for what he believed in,never
wavering,and refusing to give into the racism of the time and the
government's attempts to make him go abroad to fight in the Vietnam war
against people he had no quarrel with,in a war he believed to be
unjust.Ali was and still is an inspiration to his generation and thing's for sure,there never was,nor will there ever be
another like him.despite his affliction,he remains positive about life
and is is mentally him or hate him,you can't deny the
impact he has had.for me,"Muhammad Ali:Through the Eyes of the World"
is a must see.i give it 5/5

It's hard to believe that Ali is no longer a living person on this planet. He was full of energy, full of bravado yet in retrospect very humble. He was true to his convictions and brave in the face of adversity that came from his need to be free. He was loved all over the world and even though our paths never crossed, I must say I loved him and I'm sad he is gone.
This documentary gives similar sentiments from very eloquent people who had personal contact and interaction with him. They praise him and look up to him.
And when he was weak and trembling unable to control his body, he took it with his head held high. This documentary brought back wonderful memories of my youth when I was Muhammed Ali. He was as great as a human being can be

What an outstanding DVD (4.75 stars) -
I was really skeptical at first because the price was so low and I just thought this was going to be one of those cheap and poorly put together Muhammad Ali pieces. I put it on my Holiday Wish List and I figured 10 bucks is pretty cheap for a family member and it's a DVD I want to check out...Maaaan did I get lucky!
Lots of great, fun and rare footage. Some great interviews and thoughts and memories from some pretty interesting people and a hilarious story from Billy Crystal in the Special Features section (the only good thing about that section otherwise it's pretty lame)
Great for any Muhammad Ali fan! - The price for this DVD is absolutely outstanding!
